      Peters Aircraft has released their long awaited Airbus 321-232. The product page for this aircraft states:
      "This model is a very complex simulation of the real aircraft, not a toy! If you are a real Airbus pilot, or you are familiar with my A380 or with the QPAC A320, it should be easy for you to handle this A321. Otherwise this simulation of an Airbus will be demanding. Complexity of this model makes it not the first choice for a beginner in X-Plane or flight simulation. It takes a lot of patience, learning about all the systems and get accustomed to the various procedures. If the aircraft is loaded Cold & Dark, it is really disconnected from power and all systems are shut down. You need to go through the procedures of re-animation, including a full ADIRS alignment, which takes between 5 and 17 minutes, depending on geographic latitude, typically 8-10 min. This time should be used for flight preparation and MCDU data entry. Loading the aircraft with engines running makes it ready for immediate use. A third option, taking over the "warm" aircraft from another crew, will be available soon."
      The aircraft may be purchased at Peters Aircraft for a cost of €39.90 (~$50 USD).
